Please view the Goldsmiths Course Catalog for course offerings and descriptions.
When selecting courses, it is important to pay attention to course levels and pre-requisites. UK undergraduate degrees are 3-year programs in which students do not typically take modules (courses) outside of their major. The module catalog categorizes modules into levels based on the year the module is taught in the degree. There is a general progression from Year 1 to Year 3, although it is not equivalent to the more strict delineation of 100, 200, 300, 400 level courses, as is common in the United States.
You can choose modules from all three years if you meet the pre-requisite(s) listed in the module description; however, you should be aware that Goldsmiths degree students in Year 2 and Year 3 of their degree have taken a significant number of modules in that department.
When completing your Academic Preferences Form, keep in mind that Goldsmiths does not have course codes. In the course code section of the form, please enter the academic department in which the course is taught.
The Department of Psychology offers a research module where students are placed into one of five possible research groups and earn academic credit serving as research assistants. If you are interested, indicate this on your Academic Preferences Form and your Program Manager will follow up. Learn more about research groups and see the module syllabus below:

Goldsmiths registers you in classes you select in your Academic Preferences Form; it is important that you list one alternate for every preferred course totaling eight courses. It can be difficult to change course preferences, and there is limited course availability after the application deadline. Your Program Manager will likely be able to provide your course schedule prior to arrival.
